Baki The Grappler

Will Baki ever become the strongest?

We see Baki becoming a stronger grappler with each day of training and each grueling fight. He beats opponents we think would give his father some competition like Biscuit Oliva, I don't know about you guys but he was one muscle-bound maniac and looked like he'd certainly give Ogre (Yujiro) a run for his money. Baki beat him with sheer determination, lust and strength, so will he ever rise to the King's expectations? Or will he wallow in shame and defeat?

Baki's Past

Baki has gone through countless trials and hardships, with each one propelling him to become a strong grappler. Early in the anime Baki fought for strength, he fought so he'd become the strongest man to alive. Yujiro, left Baki in Emi Akazawa's hands (Baki's mom). Yujiro entrusted her with the task of training Baki, so that he may one day gain Yujiro's acknowledgement. Emi paid various people to fight with Baki, one of which was a group of 100 people. Baki alone, defeated 37 of them only to be knocked out after a heavy beating. Afterwards he abandoned the gym and his special coaches that blinded him to the truth, but thanks to Baki being a knucklehead he was at lost as to what to do after abandoning the gym. It was then, he ventured into a boxing gym and met the Lightweight champion, Yuri Chaikovsky. Baki, in his naivety, challenged Yuri, being a Jigear (a clan known for never declining a challenge) he accepted it. Baki lost, after receiving a death punch from Yuri mid-air. After this defeat Baki went on to fight several opponents, Yasha-crag, a giant demon ape. Kaoru Hanayama, a fearless Yakuza boss with unfathomable gripping power. The super soldier, Gaia who could willingly control his adrenaline level/output. All these fights made him much stronger, leading to a fight with his father Yujiro which he lost not only the fight, but his mother.

The Supreme Fighting Circuit (SFC)

After his defeat, Baki set out in search of competition in Brazil, only to find out that Japan already had the fighters he sought. Baki discovered the SFC and quickly became their reigning champion. The SFC's owner, Mitsunari Tokugawa decided to hold the Maximum Tournament, inviting nothing but the best, most skillful fighters he could find. There was no prize money to be won, only honor to gain and pride to protect. Baki cut through his opponents, and on the way, met some of the most renowned fighters of all times. The Tiger Slayer and legendary karateka, Doppo Orochi. His son, the ace of the Shinshinkai Dojo, inventor of the powerful Sonic Fist, Katsumi Orochi. The four thousand year old Chinese Martial Arts expert, Retsu Kaioh. The giant, Mt. Toba. The pro wrestler, Igari Kanjou. The man with hands as claws, perfecting the unknown style of Himokiri-Karate, Shinogi Kousho. Brother to Shinogi, an expert in human anatomy, a mentor to surgeons and a devastating fighter, Kureha Kousho. The heavyweight pro boxer, Ian McGregor. The infamous leader of the Kurenai gang with an undying determination, Chiharu Shiba. The Motherland's secret weapon, a mountain of muscle, no stranger to wrestling, boxing and gymnastics, Andreanov Zargon. The dismantler of joints, Roland Gustav. The iron master of Jujitsu, Gouki Shibukawa. The professor of all fighting styles and legends, Izo Motobe. A Shinshinkai dropout, karateka stills runs through his veins, Kiyosumi Kato. An actual student of the King himself, Yuu Armani. A beast that attacks with the strength of a lion and the brain of a man, he has the Hanma blood in his veins, brother to Baki and son to Yujiro, the X4 addict Jack Hanma.

Baki cut his way through all his enemies, leading to the final fight of the Maximum Tournament, where he had to fight his brother, Jack. It became a battle of sweat and blood, time counting down as Baki is bleeding and may fall unconscious. Baki manages to hold Jack in a frontward headlock and Jack struggles to not fall asleep. In this struggle between brothers, Yujiro's trademark muscles appeared on Baki's back. Minutes later Baki held the champions belt proudly.

Can he surpass the Ogre?

He's progressed immensely since his last fight with Yujiro. Will he be able fulfill his destiny and win against his father? Or will he discover that there are frankly things more important that defeating his father?
